A TRULY MOBILE JAZZ BAND!!!
It's been called:
THE JAZZ MOBILE
THE JAZZ JALOPY
JAZZ ON WHEELS
But they all mean the same thing, a very entertaining mobile Jazz Band playing the best crowd pleasing music in the world.
Working from a converted electric golf car, this mobile band can perform at most venues (ELECTRIC, no fumes) and locations with ease.
In recording this CD we decided that the music people wanted to hear was the music we play on the Golf Buggy. Happy, foot-tapping, easy to listen to - Dixieland Jazz. VAZZ ala-Carte " has re-created that sound for your enjoyment.
